Ancyluris cacica cacica & cacica latifasciata

Post by hewi »

Ancyluris cacica cacica and cacica latifasciata.
The subspecies latifasciata is often confused with A. huascar (mainly by insect traders).
As you can see, I do not follow most of the authors, who deny
cacica the species rank and consider cacica as a subspecies of inca.

You're right. I hadn't noticed that before (shame on me).
